When I first went vegan I was convinced I would miss out on things. Between Chik-fil-A, Burgers and Krispy Kreme donuts I have to be honest, I drug my feet a bit on the transition. Until I realized I could continue to make my favorites and they could even taste better than what I was used to. Like these easy, baked vegan donuts.
Ok, I’ll get real with you these don’t taste better than Krispy Kreme donuts but they are damn good and addicting. They will pair perfectly with your morning coffee or tea in the morning. Talk about a great vegan breakfast idea! Yes, please.
So how can you get off of this page (just kidding please stay as long as you’d like) and get these donuts on to your coffee table? I’ll show you how.
Prepare Your Donut Pan
Preheat oven to 350*. Then oil or grease your donut pan with a neutral flavored oil to prevent donuts from sticking to your pan. This is a crucial step because it will make it a lot easier for the donuts to slide out of the pan. (Tip: if you don’t have a donut pan you can easily make these into muffins)
Make Your Batter
In a large mixing bowl whisk together the dry ingredients including flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Set this aside while you mix together the other ingredients.
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together almond milk, sugar, butter, apple cider, vinegar, and vanilla. Once mixed well, pour these ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir together. When mixing, mix well! Do not leave any lumps in the batter.
Then using a piping bag, or what I did was cut a small corner of a ziplock bag and created a makeshift piping bag, gently pour the batter into the donut pan. You can also spoon the batter into the donut pan as well.
Bake Then Ice
Bake donuts in preheated oven for about 10 minutes or until golden brown.
While donuts are baking mix the icing ingredients together. If you want to make two separate colors of icing split the icing once the powdered sugar and almond milk have been mixed together and add the powdered colorings separately, in two different bowls.
Then Ice the donuts using a spoon and a little flicka tha wrist and viola! Perfectly Sweet Iced Cinnamon Vegan Donuts. Enjoy!
P.S. These donuts would go very well with a warm London Fog. Mmmm, cheers !
